Interesting reading all of this again. I'm surprised that the Baldwin feral cat problem is not on the top 10. It's probably number 11 Lol. I wonder which story has the most comments for 2012?

Wow, good call, Frank. Surprisingly, that cats story—"Man Wants Stray Cats Controlled—Or Shot" (http://patch.com/A-tQC5)— is only No. 14, behind, in order: "MUST-SEE: South Baldwin Presents 'Firefighter Gangnam Style'" (http://patch.com/A-y6sn); "REMINDER: All B-W Trick-or-Treating Times Pushed to Saturday" (http://patch.com/A-zd3b); and "Leland Point Becomes The Residences of South Hills" (http://patch.com/A-tYdh). As for highest number of comments, that goes to "Whitehall Man Aiming to Remove Obama from PA Ballot" (http://patch.com/A-qH6l).
